According to E! Online, Natasha Richardson has been taken off life-support. 

Declared brain-dead on Tuesday after a fall during a ski trip, Richardson was flown to New York's Lenox Hill Hospital where her husband actor Liam Neeson and their two children have been keeping vigil. The decision was made earlier today to remove her from life support systems.

Our thoughts are with Liam and their children.

UPDATE 2:  Liam Neeson released this statement;

"Liam Neeson, his sons, and the entire family are shocked and devastated by the tragic death of their beloved Natasha. They are profoundly grateful for the support, love and prayers of everyone, and ask for privacy during this very difficult time."
